The tooth filling materials market is poised to experience significant growth through 2030 owing to increasing population suffering from tooth-related ailments.
Recently, major players have been focusing on developing innovative products and adopting effective growth strategies to extend their customer reach, thereby fostering the tooth filling materials market outlook. To cite an instance, in May 2022, QTT Co., an AI (artificial intelligence) oral application start-up, expedited its market penetration with the launch of its AI oral care application, dubbed e.apo Mobile. The novel application enables oral examination at home and informs users of their dental needs by generating a customized report, allowing them to receive timely treatment.
In another instance, in November 2021, Pearl, a leader in AI-based dental care solutions, inked a partnership agreement with Unident, a prominent digital dental care distributor, to distribute its dental pathology detection units into the Nordic countries. This partnership was intended to help Pearl market its AI dental radiology solution viz., Second Opinion and Practice Intelligence, by integrating these solutions within Unident’s Onepix imaging software. The software integration was set to be a first-of-its-kind solution to become available to both practitioners and patients in the Nordic market, ushering in the complete array of benefits of AI-assisted clinical care.
The tooth filling materials market has been bifurcated on the basis of region, end-use, and material.
Based on end-use, the market has been divided into dental clinics, hospitals, and others. In 2021, the hospitals segment was worth more than $698 million and is anticipated to grow at a robust pace over the analysis timeframe. This growth is attributed to several factors, including the availability of board-certified skilled dentists, faster and more efficient work, and a higher success rate, among others.
In the context of material, the tooth filling materials market has been segmented into silver amalgam, gold fillings, glass ionomer, composite resin, and others. Among these, the composite resin segment garnered a significant share in the market in 2021 and is estimated to reach a valuation of about $1,263 million by 2030 due to the wide range of capabilities that composites possess. Additionally, continuous development and innovation in composite resins are likely to fuel segmental expansion in the upcoming period.
On the regional front, the Middle East & Africa tooth filling materials market was valued at over $81 million in 2021 and is primed to observe strong progress over 2022-2030. Mounting awareness about dental disorders and oral health across various countries in the MEA region is slated to augment market demand through the review timespan.
